Rivers has long spoken of his happiness playing in Houston, but there will be far more lucrative offers elsewhere. It’s 50/50 on him to return, but team sources are already resigned that keeping Rivers and Faried would be difficult because of the market and that other teams are able to offer more. Both players went from bad experiences to good ones, and Houston would be happy to see them get paydays elsewhere.
Jonathan Feigen: If the Rockets can land a bargain at that price it could be a significant move, but failing that, they could dip into that to try to bring back Austin Rivers, who became their sixth man. There are holes to fill, however. The Rockets really did not have a backup power forward and were very thin and inexperienced at small forward, relying on Danuel House Jr. and three-guard lineups. They also might need to bolster their options at center, with Nenê generally limited to half the season, Kenneth Faried a free agent and Isaiah Hartenstein, though progressing, still a project. They also can make some strides in their level of play, particularly for Capela who disappointed against the Warriors.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed free agent forward/center Kenneth Faried.
Shams Charania: The Houston Rockets are waiving guard James Nunnally to create roster space for Kenneth Faried, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium.
Albert Nahmad: Kenneth Faried is set to clear waivers at 5:00 pm EST today. If the Rockets want to sign him before tonight’s game, they’ll need to first clear a roster spot. If they can’t find a Carmelo Anthony trade in that span of time, they’ll just terminate James Nunnally’s 10-day contract.
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets assign center Isaiah Hartenstein to the Vipers in the G League. With Capela out, and the Rockets sending Hartenstein to RGV it is almost as if they plan to add a center soon.

Bobby Marks: Kenneth Faried eventual signing will cost the Rockets $684K in salary and an additional $1.2M towards the luxury tax. Faried will earn $918K on a prorated minimum. Houston could see $2.6M in tax relief with the injury to Clint Capela. The center has $1.5M in bonus money.
